The purpose of this strategic plan is to set a course for Malawi Health Care Support UK (MAHECAS UK) for the next three years. The plan lays out a number of strategic aims, describes the key activities that have already been undertaken and charts a path for the future. It is intended to create a framework to guide the MAHECAS’s activities for the next three years.
MAHECAS has contributed to social and well-being of many Malawians through the support of the Malawi health system. Formed in 1995 by 3 Malawian medical doctors based in the UK, with a vision to channel resources earned in Diaspora to Malawi, MAHECAS became registered as Charity in 1996.
MAHECAS in the last 17 years has contributed tremendously to the health services in Malawi. Over £500,000 has been raised in cash, medical equipment and supplies since the formation of MAHECAS. Including the many hours of service offered on voluntary basis in the value of the assistance to Malawi, would increase the assistance to over £1 million. The Committee contributes on average 20 person days per year representing 160 man days per year. If a modest £200 per man-day is taken this represents £32,000 per year.
